Librarian Humour

I found a new library related blog to read, yay!! So here's a few links to old posts that I thought were worth a second look:
There She Is: a commentary on this stereotypical image. And yes, it is true, but there are good reasons for its sensibleness!! This is totally me, minus the skirt. I don't do skirts
Is That Funny?: librarian jokes. Yes I know. But they're funny! For example -
How many academic librarians does it take to change a light bulb? Just five. One changes the light bulb while the other four form a committee and write a letter of protest to the Dean, because after all, changing light bulbs IS NOT professional work!
How many catalogers does it take to screw in a light bulb? Just one, but they have to wait to see how LC does it first.
How many cataloguers does it take to change a lightbulb? Only one provided it is in AACR2.
How many reference librarians does it take to change a light-bulb? (with a perky smile) “Well, I don’t know right off-hand, but I know where we can look it up!”
How many library system managers does it take to change a lightbulb? All of them as the manual was lost in the last move (or flood). How many library managers does it take to change a lightbulb? At least one committee and a light bulb strategy focus meeting and plan.
How many library technicians does it take to change a lightbulb? Seven. One to follow approved procedure, and six to review the procedure. (8 if you count the librarian they all report to)
